. >> thank you very much. both mitt romney and barack obama have suspended their schedules just days before the voters make their choice. for more on the storm's impact on this race, i'm joined by the bbc north america editor in florida where president obama was supposed to be campaigning today and bridgette in cleveland, ohio, the state where governor romney was supposed to be stomping today. let's start with you in florida. i'm incredibly jealous. pouring with rain here in washington, d.c. it must feel a world away, both weather-wise and politically. >> yes, it does. we woke up here this morning thinking the president wag going to launch his campaign. we knew this was going to be a big moment with bill clinton rolling out the big guns, if you like, and that was all canceled rather suddenly just as we woke up. so it was really strange knowing he was flying back to cope with a crisis while the rally went on and the normal things you hear at these rallies, the political campaign was going on. and the storm was mentioned by bill clinton but really not heavily. only in passing. and i think peo
counts for both tickets. obama is campaigning in virginia and colorado earlier this week. romney, well, he's cancelled his debates in virginia and he's on a bus tour of ohio. so mitt romney has now an important endorsement out of iowa. the des moines register has chosen romney because they say it's all about the economy. it marks the first time in 40 years that the newspaper has backed a republican and the presidential general election. meanwhile, president obama has added the "new york times" to his endorsement column, the editorial page listed obama's achievement like saving the auto industry and health care reform as reasons for the endorsement. it he has not backed a republican since dwight eisenhower. >> ohio considered quite the price that could win either condition dat at the house. >> obama is scheduled to leave washington, he's not scheduled to leave washington today in fact he's staying close to the white house because of this storm. >> in newest poll in the state of ohio says mitt romney may have condition to be concerned. as we have said, it's a close rate there, we have as
, obama and romney both claim that they were and still are for a balanced budget. reality. the obama budget this year was $1 trillion in deficits. the paul ryan budget which passed the u.s. house was $600 billion in deficit. i have the courage to submit a balanced budget if i'm elected president right after i'm inaugurated. secondly, i am for jobs and america for american citizens first, and the only candidate that has called for a near complete moritorium on green card admissions to the united states until unemployment is under 5%. it makes no sense to bring in so many foreign workers when our unemployment is so high in this country. [applause] secondly, third, we -- >> running low on time. >> we need the super p.a.c.sit n and political action committees, that would be one of the things to open up our country for greater process and greater voice by the people, and finally, we need term limits. it is time to do the best job in congress instead of the election and fund raiser. >> now an opening statement from governor johnson. >> the country is in really deep trouble. we should not b

on the presidential cam pains. particularly in some key swing states. both vice president joe biden and mitt romney have cancelled campaign rallies in virginia beach that were scheduled for this weekend. the obama campaign says biden's schedule was changed so police and emergency crews could stay focused on helping people with that storm. first lady michelle obama as well cancelled a campaign rally. this was in another critical swing state, in new hampshire. it was scheduled for next week in durham, but that campus is closing for that storm. sandy's political ramifications don't stop there either. take a look at this picture that we put together for you. it shows some of the campaign layers hitting the east coast. as we mentioned, campaign events across the country being delayed or cancelled already. we've told you to expect huge travel delays as well. alexandria just mentioned that. in addition to impacting millions of travelers, though, the campaigns may have to make some last-minute maneuvering themselves. and finally, a major storm hitting the most densely populated section of the country, coul
. no motorcades there, folks. that means both romney, who is in ohio and iowa today, and the president will probably end up spending more of their time in the midwest than they had planned with possible stops in colorado and florida. second, barring problems with federal disaster response, the president is likely to have a messaging advantage, if you will, as he gets to run are the government. he does run the government. he is the president. he simply has to do his job. by comparison in the next four days, hurricane sandy will replace mitt romney, does he have momentum or not story as the lead of nearly every swing state newspaper and newscast. the lead story will not be something that goes along like today, romney took his message of change to fill in the blank. and finally, the storm could put a premium on mechanics. and while the romney campaign is certainly a lot better than john mccain's 2008 operation, the more this race focuses on mechanics, the better it is probably for the obama campaign. asked whether the storm could affect early voting, the president said that remains to be
has done to the campaign. both president obama and mitt romney altering their campaign schedules, of course. but there are two different positions. how does this play out? >> great coverage this morning. and i have to pause and say it's sobering to see the pictures, to think about all the people with kids who can't get to a shift they may need. and it's hard to talk clinically about the politics, but go ahead and put on the stethoscope here. and point out that the campaigns are not suspended, the campaigns have been going on, they're just having to be very ginger about how they navigate it. at the same time president obama yesterday was sending out an appeal to his campaign list for red cross donations, his campaign aides were on a conference call talking about how they're about to go up in ohio with an ad hammering romney. they also announce there as you were talking about they're going up in pennsylvania. the president has that automatic stage. we saw him acting there as commander in chief. mitt romney has to avoid looking like he's going for photo ops. looking like he's doing
campaign and the romney campaign. both have put a lot of bodies on the ground in these swing states. it is a really technologically sophisticated architecture for turning voters out. and one thing we're about to see is whose architecture is better. they have not led in an ohio poll in quite a while. they have not led in any of these nbc swing state polls, there are 32 of them according to twitter this morning. if their turnout model's better than obama's which seems unlikely from what i've heard, but if it is, that could change things. otherwise it's hard to see campaigning or another ad is going to do. people have heard it all by now. >> chuck, it's donny. obviously, we're all living through sandy. >> reporter: yes. >> you're in iowa or a wisconsin or an ohio swing voter, how does it play? >> reporter: you know, i think -- i'm guessing yesterday, seeing a roep aepublican and det working together. when you look at what i think has been a very effective closing message up until sandy happened, which was he was simply going to the -- wherever he was going, sometimes it was base counti

not be surprised if we have a number of changes on the horizon as both president obama and mitt romney monitor this storm and its effects. alex? >> well, the president, he was doing some interviews yesterday. he did a lot of them. and it's going from local market to local market that way. what's he saying? >> reporter: well, alex, a number of things that we've sort of gleaned from these interviews that he did. he is reaching out to young voters, to women voters, to independents. one of his key messages, though, is for folks to get out and vote early. this is what he said to our colorado affiliate yesterday. take a listen. >> i've fought for middle class families in colorado and all across the country. that's the kind of president i think you want. and i'm looking forward to having the privilege to serving another four years. a lot of it's going to depend on colorado, so i hope everybody takes advantage of early vote in colorado. you guys are always ahead of the curve when it comes to voting. >> reporter: alex, of course colorado is a key battle ground state. but that is a key part of the obama

surprise. well, the storm causing both the president and mitt romney cancel several campaign visits. the president was supposed to rally with former president bill clinton in florida. that's not happening. president obama, he arrived back in d.c. got off air force one. you can see the pictures there. quickly got into the motorcade. normally he is flown in a rain chopper from the joint andrews base in maryland, but weather forcing a road trip back to the white house. that often happens when the weather is pretty bad. they don't want to take any security risks or chance there's. the president scheduled to make remarks about hurricane sandy. that is happening at about 20 minutes or so, 12:45 eastern to be exact, so keep it right here because we're obviously going to dip into that. going to carry his speech live, the briefing. he will talk, obviously, about what the white house and the administration is doing, the number of phone calls, conference calls that he has been making throughout the morning and throughout the weekend preparing for hurricane sandy. of course, in the midst of all
're both back at it. mitt romney, went into it and brought things back where they should be. they should be on the economy. we have that huge jobs number tomorrow morning. romney points out that he is all over the jobs, he is the one that creates jobs. obama went to a weird place. talking about green energy, i don't know where -- >> dana: we'll talk about that later. >> bob: can i point out -- >> dana: kimberly and greg haven't had a chance to talk. >> bob: sorry. >> dana: kimberly, karl's prediction was he believes that it will be 51-48 with romney winning, carrying at least 279 electoral college votes. your thoughts? >> kimberly: romney by 3%. i think he will go for it, he will win with 280 electoral votes. i believe he is going to take ohio by margin large enough to be contested in terms of the popular vote. he will take the electoral. >> dana: maybe in wisconsin. what do you think? >> greg: i predict a 90-43 obama victory. that's how well the obama campaign gets out the vote. there will be undocumented workers, space at it lens, local mannequins. the real winner is american people be
a last minute play for pennsylvania. this weekend both mitt romney and paul ryan are campaigning in that state. ryan is in harrisburg, pennsylvania, today and tomorrow. romney heading to bucks county. and cnn political editor paul stein houser is live from harrisburg right now. the polls show that romney is narrowing the gap with obama in that state. can he realistically hope to take the state this late in the game? >> reporter: no doubt about it. 90 minutes from me at the airport you'll have paul ryan, the republican running mate holding a rally. yeah, tomorrow mitt romney is going to be in suburban philadelphia. that's the swing part of the state, the part of the state that really determines who wins pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes. the obama campaign is not taking this sitting down. jill biden is coming to pennsylvania to campaign today. and one of the big guns on the obama side, the former president clinton will be campaigning here in pennsylvania on monday. fred, i got here last night. i turned on the tv watching the local news. a lot of campaign ads. you know what? in the
of aimless bury, massachusetts. and in both cases mitt romney asked for federal assistance and federal aid. when the second disaster happened, romney and the state had money sitting in the until because people were evacuated. he refused to spend the state's money even though they had a surplus because he wanted to know what the federal government was going to give him first. he didn't think it was a moral hazard to wait for the federal government to write a check before he spent massachusetts's own money and he wound up refusing to help families in lower massachusetts who were really hurting and he refused to spend the state's money to help them. so what is the actual moral hazard here? >> steve, if it was at least a month left in the campaign i have no doubt team obama would have an ad out, at least a week or two from now, with this fema response, including disaster relief. everything would be in that ad. and but now with the election coming on tuesday, it's difficult to see how team obama cuts that ad and gets it out there in a way people don't think are overly exploiting the situation.
. >> both candidates expected to use the last few days in swing states with romney planning to hold his last rally monday night in new hampshire. >> on his way up to new hampshire, sounds like he's going to spend a good amount of time in pennsylvania, at least spending money there. >> reporter: pennsylvania is supposed to be a lock for president obama. the last time a republican won was 1988. but they elected pat toomey to the senate in 2010, elected a republican governor, 12 of the last 20 seats in the house are republican and they feel they have a shot and want to expand the electoral map with 20 electoral votes. they think they can do well in affluent suburban, philadelphia and even take a shot in allegheny county which has not gone republican since 1972 >> can't be good news for the obama campaign? >> no, it is not good news for the obama campaign. they are defending seats. all these battleground states that we are talking about, you know, he won pennsylvania by 681,000 votes, 10% points. he should be trying, the president, expanding rather than defending but all they care about is winni

candidate who could've lost to claire mccaskill. mitt romney is going to win 55% in missouri this year. i think any respectable republican who did not put both feet in his mouth would have carried that race. we now think claire mccaskill has a lead to a large enough to survive the romney landslide in missouri. also, there is a libertarian on the ballot there. that percentage will surprise you. that's where a lot of republicans who will not support todd akin and will not support claire mccaskill will go, i think. that should enable claire mccaskill to hold received another six years. host: when you look at virginia, what will you be watching on election night? guest: i want to see -- you always want the first votes to come in. and it varies from year to year. they come in from different places, so you have to know the history of each city and county and even increasing st -- and even the precincts, to know the results. i will look at the critical swing counties in northern virginia, loudoun county and prince william county. i will be looking at chesterfield, richmond, enreico. i want to se

it throws both campaigns off a bit but it throws mitt romney off more because he has less opportunity now to get his message out because people are preoccupied with this huge weather event. >> richard, the most campaigns are frozen. >> yep. >> who loses the most? cynthia says it's romney. what do you say? >> look, i don't think either of them planned for this. certainly in terms of the romney campaign, early voting takes some impact but in virginia it's not the same rules. in florida there's not that much impact at all. so i don't know that it's that much of an interruption but in terms of the optics of it, you know, when you're a challenger, you don't have anything to do except campaign nour flying around and when you do so you look more commanding and presidential. so i think it's a benefit for a president as long as the response actually works. if it doesn't work, you've got a whole other situation going on in your hands. if we carry on this track, the president is in a slightly better position but we'll be back to this in a very short amount of time. >> yes. and as one who lives in ne
